At 5:30 this morning I moved a badger off the road. I lifted him by his back paw, hoping desperately he wasn't actually dead and wanting to be ready to leap out of the way of his fury at being disturbed. He didn't move so I lay him under some bushes a way off and wished him peace now for his rest. He was solid and heavy and I imagined he would have been a fantastic gardener. I hope he was a grandfather badger so no one was depending on him and he'd lived a long, fulfilled life. Goodbye Badger.

I want to hug the world and stop the death of innocent animals.

Cmon guys! This is over the top! There is a circle of life. Goodness me!

Faith, I agree that there is a circle of life. However, I do not agree that animals which meet an early death because of the irresponsibility of human action is a part of this circle. And I certainly think that it's okay, and healthy, to lament the death of these animals, especially those that are endangered purely because of humans, such as the badger.
